Croft-Cameron Motorcycles

Croft Cameron of St. Michael's Road, Stoke, Coventry.

  • Sometimes known as Croft, they were large engined motorcycles produced from 1923 to 1926
  • The company's production was always small-scale. They built big twins with bulbous saddle tanks that looked similar to the Brough Superior. The machines were fitted with Anzani 996cc V-twin ohv engines and their best-known model was the Super Eight. The Croft-Anzani V-twin of 1922 had four valves per cylinder, Montgomery forks, chain drive, rim brakes front and rear, and a saddle tank. The Sturmey-Archer gearbox was a close-ratio unit, it had an Enfield cush drive in the rear wheel and an engine shock absorber on the primary drive sprocket. It was a very advanced motorcycle indeed.
